Ink & Mixed Media Haiku Concertina Books

Dagmara Rudkin

In these three playful and relaxed sessions, you will respond to micro-poems and explore ink drawing, collage and mono printing techniques to create figurative or semi abstract imagery. You will then combine your artwork with words into a one-off artist’s book: a poetic contemplation of transient landscapes.

Session 1: You will explore traditional and experimental ink drawing and mixed media techniques to develop imagery inspired by landscapes and animals.

Session 2: You will learn how to use six different simple printmaking techniques in response to haiku poems.

Session 3: You will use collage and mixed media techniques and combine images created earlier with haiku words into a series of concertina books.
